Hi! I hope I'm doing this right? :eek:_O:

Okay, so, I do a lot of mixed media art and collages, and I've recently decided to try waterpainting as well (although I haven't actually tried to do anything so far except test the paints out, haha). I thought I would post some of the collages I've done in the past year!

Please note: I had to scan these back before I had a decent camera, and since these are in a book it didn't go too easily. They're a bit blurry in the middle. Please forgive that!

Here's the very first collage I did, "New Mexico."

And this one's called "Travel."

This one's called "Red." I'm guessing you can sense a theme to my titles, lol.

I have more collages and more mixed media pieces I still need to photograph, but I'm seriously lazy in that part of the whole "making art" thing, lol. 8)

Honestly, some of my favorite user-submitted art on Carpe Diem.IM. You have a new fan. Truly exceptional.
Thank you so much! It's always nice to get positive feedback, haha.

I totally agree with Ferdinand and Janus. Those works were really amazing. I have never seen like this before so I think you got a unique and creative talent. Keep it up buddy! Hope to see more from you. :)

I've seen some work like this before and i like some of them here and others i cannot understand but i guess it's because i've never seen much of these.

This is pretty cool! I've never seen collages like this before (I don't really look at much modern art) but it's really cool! I might use on of these as my background lol! (Is that ok with you?)

Wow! I'm amazed at how you've created each collage with its own individualized personality. Truly a marvel that in my opinion, are already show worthy, ready to be bought (from a professionally perspective).

Thank you for sharing your talent.

These are lovely collages . They are very much the thing in art at the moment . Have you seen the work of Hannah hooch she was a dada artist and i feel her art was very before her time , check her out .

Each collage is a world to itself. All of the interesting pictures and colors. I see a collage can reveal a lot about a person, their likes, culture etc. It looks like a very personal expressive art form. Each one had some nice design elements to go along with the pictures.

Ooo, I really like those. I love how even though there's a ton going on in each, your eye is led from one direction to another, from piece to piece, without just feeling like a jumbled mess like some collages are.

Wow! Those are wonderful works and it loos so easy to do it but I know it wasn't. The mixture of colors are perfect and the mood o each photo reflects the other. Truly exceptional! :D

Very nice! I like the colors a lot. They are fresh and it reflex how you are everything but boring.

Were these use for any specific campaign? Or based on any specific theme?

Keep up the good work! and hope you share more with us!

I love collages...you get to see so much of the person who created them in the images you choose to share. They are whimsical and funky and add a lot of flair wherever they are displayed. I love your use of mixed media...it adds layer of complexity to the pieces. These are awesome. Thanks for sharing.

These are great! There's something so raw and yet beautiful about collages and mixed media art...I love it. You seem like a natural too, I've attempted a few and they don't come out nearly so well composed!

These are really amazing! I love creating collages, but mine certainly don't turn out nearly as good as these. You are inspiring me to create some more though.

Wow! Very impressive. I'm not the best at collages, but I've only done a few in my time. These are great though! I see you put a lot of effort into them and it really expresses your creativity.
